How do the symptoms of COVID-19 differ from the symptoms of fall allergies?

In both cases the lungs and throat might be affected, but with a viral illness there is fever—and that’s not present with allergies. Allergies to pollen and grasses cause sneezing and itchiness in the eyes, nose and throat, but you would not see those symptoms from the novel coronavirus. Cough is a common symptom of COVID-19, which can also be present in some patients with allergies.

Here’s another difference: With seasonal allergies, the symptoms tend to wax and wane and get worse when you are outside. With a viral infection, there’s typically a steady worsening.

Do the symptoms of allergies and COVID-19 express themselves differently in children than in adults?

Kids with allergies tend to be restless, while with adults who have allergies, there’s more fatigue. We’re still learning about the differences between how grownups and kids experience COVID-19, though in general children seem to have less severe symptoms. If a child is lethargic and feverish and has a persistent cough, in the absence of itchy eyes and a runny nose, then you should call the pediatrician.

Are people with allergies more susceptible to coronavirus than others are?

At this point, we do not know, but allergists around the country have noticed no increase susceptibility. While people with compromised immune systems are at higher risk of severe COVID-19, people with allergies don’t have a compromised immune system; their allergies are actually an overreaction of the immune system.

 Do patients with allergies need to adjust their treatment in light of coronavirus?

 Just be steady with medications

 

A lot of people are using this time of social distancing to spring clean. Any tips for those with fall allergies?

If your allergy is due to pollen, being inside may be helpful, and if spring cleaning makes you feel better, that’s a benefit. Do keep in mind that cleaning can kick up a lot of dust, so if the issue is indoor allergens, get some clarification from your doctor
